Fountain City Council met on Thursday, November 7, 2013 in the City Office. The first order of business was to hear bids on a tractor from a representative from Marzolf Implement of Spring Valley, Minn. A motion was carried to buy a tractor with the purchase price of $28,965 with trade in. The tractor comes with a two year/2,000 mile warranty.

Consent Agenda items were approved including the minutes from the October 3, 2013 meeting, the Treasurer’s report, monthly city bills, monthly Fire Department bills, and year end payroll.

In City Maintenance John Hanson has accepted the position of City Maintenance employee and will begin on November 18, 2013. The city council approved hiring John Hanson for the position.
